I use this in my bird deck, combos very well with Soulcatchers' Aerie. And then have lands like Skycloud Expanse to counter the colourless mana.

birds are an abused creature type, it would be interesting to see a deck list

Just a rating of 2.5? This land ain't bad. Comes into play untapped, ready to produce some mana, which is better than most "comes into play tapped" lands. And it produces cheap card advantage in the right decks. If you play a deck with cards that change creature types, you can also sac all kinds of other creatures, or creatures you stole for one turn from opponents, or whatever.

This lil' guy is great in a bird deck. I have a bird deck with squadron hawks, flurry of wings, and airborne aid. Throw in stormscape familiar, and you end up with a lot of birds very quickly. Being able to chump to bird tokens and then sack them to this card is pretty efficient. And with that soulcatcher's aerie, you've turned a bird into a glorious (bird) anthem and drawn a card in the process. Rinse and repeat as appropriate.
But what's up with the flavor? How is this a haven? It kills birds! I imagine that working something like this:

Bird 1: Hey bird 2! You wanna go check out that new seaside haven? I've got a blue and white mana burning a hole in my bird pocket!

Bird 2: Sure! I bet it will be super safe there because it's a haven! Let's go have some good non-risky fun!

Bird 1: Uh, right. Let's go!

Bird 2: Here we are! Why is there a skull over there?

... (see all)

OK, so I threw one of these in a deck that has a playest of Aven Rif***chers and a couple Mindshriekers and was blown away by how much use I got out of the thing. It's subtle, usually doing no more than tapping for a colorless mana the first few turns it comes into play, but it's great for turning over those almost-vanished Rif***chers or any other little birdie you might be chumping with. Since it comes into play untapped there is very little drawback. What's great is that even though my deck didn't have any kind of emphasis on birds to begin with, it has still proven itself to be incredibly more valuable than a basic land based on the fairly-insignifigant bird density of my deck. Since throwing it in that deck, I have added a couple Judge's Familiars to the deck, which add some value on their own, just one of dozens of excellent choices for Bird creatures. 4.5/5

@raptorman333, think of it as letting your birds go. Let them fly free!

Apparently it's the word if you haven't heard.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
